  • Making 2nd flight
    Jan 4, 2017
    Arriving gate E9 at 12:30...connecting to LGA on flight scheduled at gate C37 at 1:07. No carry-ons to collect or check. How likely is it we'll make it onto that next flight, and is our luggage likely to make it as well?


    It's difficult and depends on the first flight being on-time, but it's not impossible.


  • Connecting from ORD thru CLT on to SXM!!
    Jan 4, 2017
    We are arriving from ORD at 8:28 am, departing at 9:30 am to SXM. Both American flights, will we have enough time to make our connection and do we have to go through customs or do anything special?


    There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in Charlotte is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.


  • Gates E2 and E35
    Dec 28, 2016
    How long a walk to connect from arrival at E2 to To a E35 connection ?u


    It should be less than 10 minutes if you can walk quickly.


  • Is 2 hrs good for clearing immigration and catching connecting flight?
    Jan 9, 2017
    I am travelling to Memphis via CLT. Arriving from London at 14:10 and connecting flight to Memphis at 16:10. Is 2 hrs good for clearing immigration and catching the connecting flight? Both flights are on American Airlines.


    Yes, that should be enough time.


    Flying AA also, coming into Clt from fra. Will I have to go through customs and recheck my bags before boarding AA again?


  • Can I reach Bojangles at B6 from arriving at gate D10 without going th
    Dec 21, 2016
    Can I reach Bojangles at B6 from arriving at gate D10 without going through security? I've been out of the country for a few years now and I'm not sure if Bojos will be open on Christmas. Cheers!


    Yes, all gates in Charlotte are connected inside security.


    however, if you're arriving on an International flight you have to go straight to US Immigration and Customs, you can't go to restaurants.


  • Minimum Connection Time
    Dec 20, 2016
    What would be the minimum domestic time that is reasonable if all things run on time...That being said...our layover with American would be 42 minutes...If there is a delay, assume American will make it right if we fail to make the connection?


    On that flight too smh. Stuck with this loud 5 year old until 230, what about you?


    That is enough time if the first flight is on-time and domestic. All gates in Charlotte are connected inside security. Yes, you would be rebooked on the next available flight, but depending on where you're going, that could be awhile.


  • Liberia, Costa Rica >> CLT >> JFK
    Dec 16, 2016
    I'll be going on a short trip to Costa rica, on my way back, I arrive from Liberia, Costa rica into CLT at 8:48 PM on American Airlines and my connecting flight to JFK on American Airlines is at 10:09 PM. Which gives me roughly 80 Minutes to pass through customs and TSA re-check in. Considering it it's in the evening, is this doable? We will only have carry-ons and will not be bringing with us anything that will slow us down (liquor, foods, etc)


    With only carry-ons I think that is possible if the flight from Costa Rica is on-time.


  • International transfer
    Dec 14, 2016
    Due to arrive from London UK at 1805 and depart for Fort Myers at 1959. Is this sufficient time to clear arriving international security and customs, collect luggage, deposit luggage and make our way to the gate. Flying American Airlines. Regards Brian from Scotland.


    Yes, that is enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Flying in from St. Maarten to Charlotte to LA.
    Dec 13, 2016
    We will be flying in from St. Maarten SXM on 12/22 arriving at 8;52 p.m. our next flight is at 10:09 p.m. We have only one hour for custom. But I only have carry-on and I have globel entry. Do I have enough time?


    With global entry and carry-ons only I think you can make it.


  • Connection from San Diego to Canada
    Dec 8, 2016
    Does CLT make you go through custom, exit, and re-enter through security like ATL or MIA? I have a short connection and hoping to just walk from my arrival gate to my departure gate. thanks.


    There is no US Customs when leaving the US (anywhere). All you have to do in CLT is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • denver to paris?
    Dec 7, 2016
    Coming in from Denver at 5:14 - leaving for Paris at 6:15. Should I have any concerns?


    That should be enough time if the first flight is on-time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate if both flights are on American.


  • 50 minutes connection time
    Dec 7, 2016
    Flying in from st martin with AA and connecting to JFK (AA). Will I have to go through US Immigration or can I connect directly to my next flight? I have 50 minutes - is that enough? (EU citizen)


    Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security and to your departure gate. That is not realistically enough time. You need at least 90 minutes.


    Thanks a lot for your reply. I guess that having only a carry-on luggage will be faster. Just have to go through Immigration (and security?) and reach the departure gate, right?


    Yes, if you only have carry ons you just have to go through Immigration, Customs, and Security, it will still be very difficult to do that in 50 minutes.


  • Connection Time
    Dec 5, 2016
    American changed our AA flight to American Eagle arriving in charlotte at 10:41 am. We depart at 11:50 am from Terminal 3. My husband needs assistance and we are concerned that we will have enough time to reach the connecting flight. What gate are we arriving at (12/15 American Flight 5454). Thanks very much for your help with this matter.


    Charlotte only has one terminal. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All gates are connected inside security. You won't know your exact gates until the day of your flight. You should have plenty of time.


  • 30 minute connection time
    Dec 2, 2016
    AA changed my flight arrival and department times. I'm arriving from LGA at 12:30pm on a Tuesday. My flight to MCO is scheduled to leave at 1:00. Is that enough time to make the connecting flight? Is there a minimum connection time the airline must follow?


    It's possible, but it doesn't leave any time to spare if the flight from LaGuardia is delayed. I would call AA and ask for a different connection.


  • Enough time?
    Dec 2, 2016
    Is an hour and a half enough time to make a connection arriving from Dublin and flying to Orlando?


    Yes, you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin. All you have to do in Charlotte is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
